Peptide Therapy

Back to Integrative Medical Services

Peptide therapy is a medical treatment that uses short chains of amino acids to improve cellular function in the body. Peptides act as chemical messengers and regulate biological processes like metabolism and immunity.


Rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach, VYVE’s team of experts conducts a comprehensive assessment to determine which peptides will be most effective for each patient. The unique approach can help improve sleep, physical performance, and energy levels without the use of chemicals, medications, or surgery.


If you’re feeling run down or not performing at your best, peptide therapy may be an effective solution to help you feel and look your best from the cellular level up.

Common Questions

How Does Peptide Therapy Differ From Traditional Medicine?

Peptide therapy differs from traditional medicine in that it focuses on improving the function of cells in the body through the use of short chains of amino acids, or peptides, rather than using drugs or surgery to treat symptoms. Peptides are natural substances found in the body that have various functions, including acting as chemical messengers. The therapy aims to optimize cellular function and restore balance in the body, which can lead to improved health and well-being. Traditional medicine, on the other hand, often focuses on treating symptoms rather than addressing underlying imbalances in the body.

Is It Possible to Use More Than One Peptide at the Same Time During Peptide Therapy?

Yes, it is possible to use multiple peptides simultaneously during peptide therapy. Depending on your specific health goals and needs, your healthcare provider may recommend using a combination of peptides to achieve optimal results. However, it’s important to note that the safety and efficacy of combining certain peptides may vary, so your VYVE provider will guide you through the treatment process and monitor your progress.

How Will I Know Peptides Work Well for Me?

The effects of peptide therapy can vary from person to person and may take time to become noticeable. You may begin to feel an improvement in your symptoms or overall well-being over several weeks or months of treatment. Usually, it takes between three to six months for people to experience the benefits of therapeutic peptides to the fullest. Don’t give up if you don’t notice immediate results, and continue working with your healthcare provider to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed. Ultimately, the best way to determine if the therapy is working for you is to discuss your progress with your healthcare provider and evaluate any changes in your symptoms or health outcomes.

In What Ways Can Peptides Be Administered?

Peptides can be administered in several ways, including injections, topical creams, nasal sprays, oral capsules, and sublingual tablets. The appropriate method of administration will depend on the specific peptide being used and the intended effects.


– Injections are a common method of administration for many peptides, as they allow for precise dosing and rapid absorption into the bloodstream.
– Topical creams and nasal sprays can be used for peptides that target skin or respiratory conditions.
– Oral capsules and sublingual tablets are more commonly used for systemic effects and may have slower onset but longer duration of action.

Can Peptide Therapy Be Considered a Safe Treatment Option?

Yes, it can generally be considered a safe treatment option when administered by a qualified healthcare professional. Peptides are naturally occurring amino acids in the body, and when used in therapy, they are carefully selected and administered in appropriate doses. However, as with any medical treatment, there are some potential risks and side effects associated with peptide therapy, which you should discuss with your VYVE

Are There Any Age Restrictions for Receiving Peptide Therapy?

There is no specific age restriction for receiving peptide therapy, as it is tailored to the individual’s needs and health condition. However, it is essential to have a thorough medical evaluation before starting peptide therapy. While generally safe for most people, children, pregnant or breastfeeding women, and elderly individuals with underlying medical conditions need to discuss their health status and medical history for the most optimal results.
